Science activity #49795, updated 14 December 2022

Operation Baseline Project 2C: Zooplankton, Romberg Tiburon Center, SFSU

Description / purpose

This project will examine responses of zooplankton (copepods) to variations in the foodweb attributable to nutrient sources. At each wetland site we will determine spatial abundance patterns and rates of reproduction, growth, and mortality. These will be integrated with information on phytoplankton and physical dynamics to determine how population dynamics responds to nutrient conditions. Stable isotopes will be used to assess nutrient source contributions to growth.
